    I'm only counting 15. Scroll bar is induced because of your viewport size. On a desktop, it is not there.

    Their nav isn't the greatest, but I do think it's the best you can do with the complex system they have to do deal with. Luckily these have tooltips on hover so it's not that bad to figure out what is what. It's just at a glance they are pretty horrid; doesn't help that most of those icons make no sense at all.

    And overall I think the new Jira redesign is great. Much more unified vision and style across the entire suite and company.

      I agree. Simpler software would not do the job for eng teams of 2+ squads. That’s why simpler ticket trackers haven’t caught on. The redesign has been a welcome one — particularly backlog grooming and general sprint tracking is much easier.

      I wish more designers weren’t so dogmatic about complexity. There’s a lot of design knowledge in those hills.

      That being said the icon nav is probably the least useful of the new UI.
